More Info:

Provocative, challenging, imperious and entertaining Swedish-based progressive metal group Soen unleash their fifth album, Imperial via Silver Lining Music. Founding members Joel Ekelöf (vocals) and Martin Lopez (drums), along with Lars Åhlund (keys and guitar), Cody Ford (lead guitar) and Oleksii 'Zlatoyar' Kobel (bass) have never shied away from challenging our perceptions of life and humanity, and Imperial continues Soen's unique journey through the psyche of our species and the conundrum of our times, complicated yet further by the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. Lead single "Antagonist" storms through the gates with a massive heavy riff of intent, followed by an epic blend of strength, beauty and defiance which will excite old school Soen-ers and new fans alike. With the sleeve art's beautiful yet deadly dark snake further informing a deep and twisted series of tales within, Imperial stands to be another outstanding chapter in Soen's ever-expanding legacy.
